A better title might have been found
The situation developed in this picture makes an interesting study; but, although the producer has made the most of his material, it is not very dramatic. It is a one character picture, played by the premier company with Warren Kerrigan in the leading role. We find him as a young man in a lonely cabin on the mountains with his old father. He is fond of reading the Bible and decides to become a monk. At the gate of the monastery, in the valley, he meets a girl who has been to the well for water. He finds another "calling." A well-made naturally acted picture; but not very well photographed. A better title might have been found; it has an unintentional anti-monastic suggestion. - The Moving Picture World, November 16, 1912
